  • 7. Conclusion

1. Prices

The first point of this review NordVPN 2019, what we want to talk about, concerns the prices. And for good reason, because it’s the point on which this VPN provider is really excellent, as you’ll see, without waiting any longer.

NordVPN offers its services with 4 subscription options:

  • 1 month subscription: 10.50 € per month without binding or renewable every month
  • 1 year subscription: 6,14 € per month
  • 2 years subscription: € 3.50 per month
  • 2 annual subscription: € 2.62 per month, that is € 94.54 in total.

It is really this last offer that makes all the strength of this provider and in our review of NordVPN very much.

It is very important to also note that a money back guarantee is granted for up to 30 days. This will give you enough time to test this high quality offer without any risks.

2. Payment Methods

Now let’s continue this assessment on NordVPN with an equally important point, namely the payment.

Once you have decided on a quote, as you have seen up here, you will of course have to pay for your subscription. And the accepted payment methods are really numerous here too.

Visit NorthVPN

This provider accepts the classic payment methods, such as credit cards and Paypal, but also Bitcoin (as well as Ripple and Ethereum) to make your payments completely anonymous.

We like this wide range of payment methods scary and are very important in this review NordVPN 2019. You will not be indifferent to this wide selection, especially as regards our favorite: PayPal.

3. Desktop Software

Another point of this review NordVPN, which will draw your attention, is that this VPN supports a lot of devices.

Namely, this provider offers the possibility to install its software on all common operating systems. As far as the mobile operating systems iOS and Android are concerned, they are also compatible with NordVPN. It is also possible to use this VPN on different router systems, game consoles etc.

As far as the software is concerned, we also want to discuss in this part of our review NordVPN 2019 that you can have up to 6 connections per license.

This means that you can protect many devices with a single subscription, such as computers, smartphones, tablets, game consoles, routers etc.

As we see this in this review NordVPN, this provider sets with 6 connections at the same time the bar very high and the opposite, you can not remain indifferent.

Windows NorthVPN

We ran the test on Windows 7 Pro and downloaded the Windows compatible NordVPN software. The application is very easy to install and provides the essentials of what you expect from a VPN. However, it is only available in English, which is a small weakness.

4. Mobile app

More and more people are using a VPN for smartphones. So it is very logical that this occupies a special place in our review NordVPN.

Visit NorthVPN

As we said above, this provider offers a wide range of mobile operating systems, from iOS to Android. So we tested the application on iOS.

5. Security and privacy

From a technical standpoint, NordVPN offers the most important VPN protocols, OpenVPN, L2TP and PPTP, which use 256-bit encryption (for the first two) or 128-bit encryption (PPTP). It is a very high level of security that will no longer have to be proven in 2019.

Another noteworthy point in our review of NordVPN is the ability to access a VPN on the TOR network or a dual VPN to make users completely anonymous.

You will understand: in the field of security, you will be safe, right?

Security NorthVPN

As far as privacy and anonymity is concerned, NordVPN has a clear declaration of confidentiality, stating that it does not keep logfiles (no activity logs and no connection logs).

This is very important if you use a VPN. You really can not afford to have a provider that would keep those logfiles, because doing so would significantly harm their security.

Furthermore, another point in the area of ​​safety for our detailed assessment NordVPN: it has the feature Kill Switch (emergency stop switch). This feature is essential to be able to surf the Internet with complete security.

In short, all the ingredients are there to give you the best experience with your Virtual Private Network.

6. Customer service

The customer service is offered by email or via an online chat: around the clock and every day of the week, but only in English. Nevertheless, we are extremely satisfied and we are convinced that you will be too.

This is indeed a point that counts very clearly in the qualities of our review NordVPN. Customer service is something extremely important that you should not neglect when choosing a VPN provider.

Visit NorthVPN

With 24/7 customer service, our review of NordVPN for 2019 can only be very positive. Test it yourself by visiting their site and you will see!

7. Speed test

Now we come to the end of our detailed evaluation test NordVPN.

To perform this speed test, we used an SDSL connection from Orange or a computer with Windows 7 Pro. First, we tested our connection without a VPN, then with the VPN from Paris, which was geographically closest to us, and finally, with the VPN from Hong Kong, which was the farthest away.

And here are the results:

Speed test result from US server.

As you can see in this review NordVPN 2019, this provider is not the fastest on the market. Their results are quite correct, but they stay well behind ExpressVPN.

It’s important to note that this speed test should be treated with caution up here as far as NordVPN struggles to improve the speed of its servers.

8. Conclusion

And now we come to the conclusion of our review of NordVPN, which, we hope, was useful for your choice among the various providers in the market.

Undoubtedly, NordVPN is one of our most popular VPN providers because of its qualities, which we summarize here.

Good:

  • No storage of log files
  • Dual VPN or VPN on the TOR network
  • P2P allowed
  • Streaming of Netflix US
  • Customer service around the clock
  • Not subject to the Patriot Act

Not so good

  • Connection speed for Australia disappointing.

2. Surfshark VPN

  • 1. Prices
  • 2. Payment Methods
  • 3. Mobile application
  • 4. Security and privacy
  • 5. Customer service
  • 6. speed
  • 7. Conclusion

1. Prices

So let’s start our detailed review of Surfshark with the pricing offered.

Like most VPNs in 2019, this provider offers an offer that differs by 3 different prices, the amount of which depends on the duration of the subscription. In other words, the longer the commitment period, the less you pay.

  • One-month subscription: For a one-month offer with no commitments, the price is $ 11.95 a month .
  • One-year subscription: For a one-year offer, the price offered is $ 5.99 a month , which is $ 71.88 for 12 months.
  • 2-year subscription: For the 2-year offer, the service is offered for just $ 3.49 a month , which is $ 83.76 for 24 months.

As you can see, the prices offered by this provider are standard on the market. They are neither very expensive nor extremely cheap. Everything depends on the quality of the services.

However, you should now that Surfshark regularly has interesting discount offers. As you can see below, there was an interesting discount on the offer of 2 years during our test. And in our opinion that is a very good tactic to win more customers.

In our opinion, the prices offered by Surfshark are attractive. But you also have to know if the quality of the services is at the level of the offered prices.

2. Payment Methods

The second point we will look at in this detailed review of Surfshark is the payment methods.

This provider, which comes directly from the British Virgin Islands, offers them the possibility to pay with bank card, PayPal, but also with cryptocurrencies . And this last payment method is in our opinion the most interesting.

By paying with cryptocurrencies you can do transactions in an anonymous way. Thus, you can use a VPN service incognito. This is a big plus for our provider.

Our rating of Surfshark’s payment methods is very positive. In addition to being able to pay with bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies , there are other payment options that are common to everyone so that everyone can find what suits their needs best.

3. Desktop Software

Let’s continue our review and testing of Surfshark by talking about the software and graphical user interface offered by this provider.

Surfshark is available for all operating system computers running Microsoft Windows, MacOS and Linux . Linux is less common, so we could not run a test on this platform. But in any case we could test the user interface for Windows and MacOS.

The first thing we noticed right after the installation is the simplicity of the user interface. This makes it very easy to handle. There are only two buttons on the main page: one to select the server and the other to connect or disconnect, which is a positive point in our review of Surfshark.

You can say that the service is one of the easiest . However, this simplicity does not necessarily appeal to everyone and especially not to those who put a lot of emphasis on design, which is the case here.

As a result, we think surfshark software is very attractive in terms of ease of use, but the design is a little disappointing . If this provider wants to prevail more strongly in the market of the VPN for Android , MacOS or Windows then he must remember to improve this point.

4. Mobile app

As far as the mobile application of Surfshark is concerned, our rating is not very different from the previous one.

Because the interface offered for small screens is the same as it is for the computer. To remind you, as we can see in the picture and as we have seen before, this VPN is available for Android and iOS. And both versions are completely identical.

As you may think, we also have the same impression about the offered software here. In fact, we always find this simplicity, which is a big advantage for handling . So the application is very easy to use, no matter if it comes to Android or iOS.

However, we did not really like the design . The simplicity of the interface does not necessarily appeal to everyone.

As a result, our full assessment of Surfshark’s software and mobile application is rather mixed. The handling is tremendously easy, but we would have preferred to see a tasteful, modern design as seen in 2019 on ExpressVPN or CyberGhost.

5. Security and privacy

Because security is a very important issue when choosing a VPN, we were unable to provide a complete review of Surfshark without mentioning it.

Like most large VPNs such as CyberGhost or ExpressVPN, this provider uses a protection system based on AES 256-bit encryption . It is the best system for protection against hackers.

To further protect its users, this provider also uses a kill switch system . If, for one reason or another, you lose connectivity with the server, your Internet connection will be automatically interrupted. In our opinion, this detail should not be taken lightly, as it guarantees their anonymity in the network, especially if you want to protect yourself from the authorities.

As far as privacy is concerned, you do not have to worry about Surfshark here either. The provider located in the British Virgin Islands is under no obligation to keep information concerning you and your activities on the Internet. So your privacy can not be seen, no matter from whom.

Our assessment of the safety and privacy of Surfshark is therefore positive. In addition to offering a very good level of security, it also guarantees the protection of your private life.

6. Customer service

We also tested Surfshark’s customer service to give them our full evaluation of this VPN service. And in our opinion the service is quite efficient.

First, Surfshark offers a customer service that is available 24/7/365 . Every time we looked for a contact person was one on the spot. But you should also know how it really is in the long run.

In any case you can contact the contact persons in different ways. In our opinion, it is most convenient to use the chat window . In this way you get an answer directly. Because you must know that the customer service of Surfshark is very responsive .

It is also possible to contact customer service by e-mail . In any case, you have to know that the answers may take a few minutes or even hours to arrive.

So we liked the customer service of this provider very much, while we did the test and the evaluation of Surfshark. The only miniscule point is that it is only available in English and does not cover any other languages, which may be an obstacle for one or the other.

7. Speed test

As you can tell in this review of Surfshark, it seems to be good in all aspects. But to complete this detailed assessment of this provider, it is important to perform a test of the offered speed. Because you have to know that the speed itself can change everything.

And this is exactly where we feel obliged to say that we were disappointed in this test. The speed reduction is too big, to our liking, comparing speed with and without VPN. Thus, this is the only weak point we could find in this provider.

This changes a lot, unfortunately, because it will be very difficult to unlock Netflix, for example, to unlock the German catalog abroad, or the other way from Germany to access the US catalog.

8. Conclusion

We would like to tell them that we have great difficulty in creating a conclusion in this article about our complete review of Surfshark. The provider has many strengths, but its speed did not convince us. It follows that it is difficult for us to recommend this provider as we do not want to risk being disappointed.

However, it is important to know that you will be offered a 30-day money-back guarantee on non-satisfaction for Surfshark service. However, if you are looking for tested providers that have been approved, we recommend ExpressVPN or CyberGhost. They are in our opinion the best VPN in 2019.

So for you here is our summary, which allows you to see the strengths and weaknesses of the provider, the content of our test and our evaluation; Surf Shark.

Good:

  • Good prices
  • Possibility to pay in cryptocurrencies
  • Software easy to use
  • Good level of security
  • Protection of privacy
  • Excellent customer service

Not so good

  • Too simple design
  • Relatively low speed

3. ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN is a British Virgin Islands based VPN provider. Due to the offshore legislation of the British Virgin Islands, he is not obliged to keep the logfiles. As you will see in this ExpressVPN Review 2019, it has numerous servers that accept P2P and are distributed in more than 94 locations around the world.

Due to its numerous strengths, it takes an excellent position in our comparison of the best VPN providers.

  • 1. Prices
  • 2. Payment Methods
  • 3. Mobile application
  • 4. Security and privacy
  • 5. Customer service
  • 6. speed
  • 7. Conclusion

1. Prices

Let’s start our ExpressVPN rating. This provider offers a single offer with three subscription formulas. The one-month subscription is offered for $ 12.95 a month – with no minimum term requirement and renewable every month.

The 6-month subscription is offered for $ 9.99 per month for a 6-month term.

Finally, the annual subscription costs $ 6.67 a month. With the latter, get a discount of 49% and three months will be given additional. In other words, you pay $ 99.95 for 15 months, which is very interesting.

All three formulas give you three simultaneous connections to protect your computer, as well as your tablet and smartphone.

A money-back guarantee of up to 30 days is also offered, allowing you to try this offer without any risk. This is very important for our ExpressVPN rating 2019. If you subscribe to this VPN provider, you take absolutely no risk.

2. Payment Methods

Before deciding on a VPN provider, it is important to look at the different accepted payment methods. Therefore, this was also analyzed very precisely in this review via ExpressVPN.

The payment methods accepted by ExpressVPN are very numerous.

 

They accept quite standard payments with credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB et Delta), Paypal, Bitcoin to pay even anonymously, but also payments via Webmoney, PaymentWall, iDeal, Giropay, Mint, Oncard …

Below is a list of the different payment methods accepted by this provider for our detailed evaluation via ExpressVPN.

3. Desktop Software

Let’s continue our ExpressVPN review with the various software supported by this VPN provider.

ExpressVPN has software for all major operating systems, including of course Windows, MacOX but also Amazon Kindle Fire.

As for mobile devices, iOS and Android are also available on ExpressVPN. Furthermore, it will also be possible to use this VPN provider on different OpenVPN router systems or the SmartDNS service on video game consoles such as Playstation and Xbox.

In other words, our rating via ExpressVPN could hardly be more positive as it covers absolutely all devices that you might own.

Visit ExpressVPN>

In addition, as we saw above in our ExpressVPN 2019 review, you will have up to 3 concurrent connections with your subscription. So you can protect all your devices.

ExpressVPN software

To test the application with Mac OS, we downloaded the Mac compatible software from ExpressVPN. The application is very easy to install and provides the most important of what you expect from a VPN.

Now only available in English for a long time in German, which will draw attention to many of our readers.

iOS Express VPN

The application for Mac is really very simple and clear. They will appreciate their intuitive handling, which was very important for our detailed evaluation via ExpressVPN.

All you have to do is select your location and click on the big button in the middle and that’s it. You can also select the Smart Location mode to access the most suitable server for your location.

4. Mobile app

In 2019, it really is not recommended to choose a VPN provider that does not have a quality mobile application. Of course it is not the case here. And so our review of ExpressVPN is very positive in this respect.

And for good reason, because it offers a diverse range of compatible mobile platforms, from iOS to Android. So we tested the application on iOS.

The mobile application is pretty elegant and easy to use. It will easily tell you what you need to know during your subscription: the state of protection, the server you are accessing, …

5. Security and privacy

This is perhaps the most important point in our ExpressVPN rating.

From a technical standpoint, ExpressVPN offers the most important protocols: VPN, OpenVPN, L2TP and PPTP with 256-bit encryption for the first two and 128-bit encryption for the third (PPTP). This provider also offers the possibility to use a SmartDNS service at no extra cost, which allows, for example, to watch Netflix on an AppleTV.

This will interest anyone looking for a streaming streaming VPN. As we see in our review of ExpressVPN, this VPN is the fastest on the market.

As far as privacy and anonymity is concerned, ExpressVPN with its confidentiality statement is very clear: no log files are kept (no activity logs and no connection logs). We think that this is a must if you want to have a quality VPN.

Features ExpressVPN

To opt for a provider who keeps the logfiles means to go into the lion’s den. If it does, take off!

Finally, for your safety, there’s one more point that was very important to our ExpressVPN rating: this VPN features the kill switch feature, the superhero that will save you, no matter what.

We have dedicated a special article to the topic of Kill Switch, where you can find out how it works or what you need to know about it!

If our rating on ExpressVPN is so positive, it’s easy because it’s the safest VPN provider on the market and the most stable. You will be able to trust him completely!

6. Customer service

For some people, customer service is unimportant. For us it may be one of the most important things for our review on ExpressVPN.

You will not be disappointed in this area. And indeed the customer service is offered via email or via online chat 24/7/365. Unfortunately, the consultants answer you only in English.

However, in terms of efficiency and responsiveness, it is by far the best customer service we have ever tested. We highly recommend him for his friendliness and efficiency.

Visit ExpressVPN>

We can not find any criticisms that we could put to customer service in our ExpressVPN Review 2019.

7. Speed

As the last point of this review on ExpressVPN, speed is simply the fastest on the market. We were really impressed by the services this provider offers.

You will not feel any difference if your protection is activated or not. By the way, that’s why he occupies such a prominent place in our comparison of the best VPN.

8. Conclusion

Our review of ExpressVPN is extremely positive and we highly recommend this excellent VPN provider.

Its 30-day money-back guarantee allows you to test it without any risk, be it downloading torrents, streaming, surfing anonymously, etc.!

All you have to do is go to the official site of ExpressVPN to subscribe.

Below is a summary of the strengths and weaknesses of this VPN provider, which we were able to present to you through this detailed evaluation ExpressVPN 2019.

Good:

  • No storage of log files
  • Fastest VPN in the world
  • Perfect for streaming with Netflix
  • Customer service 24/7/365
  • P2P allowed
  • SmartDNS included

Not so good

  • Prices slightly higher than the competition.

4. IPVanish

The VPN provider IPVanish is located in the United States, to be exact in Florida. He is one of the big names among providers worldwide. It already has over 1,200 servers distributed in 60 countries worldwide and also allows P2P. IPVanish is the only Tier 1 provider, meaning that it uses its own network around the world to provide its users with a high-quality connection from front to back. We will start here directly with our review of IPVanish 2019.

  • 1. Prices
  • 2. Payment Methods
  • 3. Mobile application
  • 4. Security and privacy
  • 5. Customer service
  • 6. speed
  • 7. Conclusion

1. Prices

We will start this review of IPVanish with a complete overview of the current prices. As with many other providers, there are also 3 offers over the duration of 1, 3 and 12 months. The monthly price here is $ 10.00, $ 8.99 and $ 6.49. These subscriptions give you 5 simultaneous connections, allowing you to connect your work computer, smartphone, and more, or simply share your subscription with others.

This is really a good technique to lower the bill in the end. Because we do not want to lie, altogether the prices offered by IPVanish are too expensive. For the 1-month offer, we could forgive that since all providers have high prices, but $ 6.49 for the 1-year offer comes to us for the service that you get provided really too expensive.

Visit IPVanish>

The first part of our review of IPVanish starts rather badly. This is even more true when comparing these prices with those from providers such as CyberGhost or NordVPN.

These two are in fact almost 3 times cheaper than IPVanish. And there’s nothing that justifies those high prices with this American provider.

2. Payment Methods

The second important point in our review of IPVanish in 2019 is the payment methods that will be provided. This is an aspect that is often not noticed as much but deserves attention so that you will be satisfied with paying for your subscription.

The payment methods offered by IPVanish are very numerous, we find here classic bank cards like VISA, MasterCard or American Express. As for the virtual payment methods, we find the much appreciated PayPal.

But also numerous payment options such as iDeal, Paysafecard or Bitcoins for completely anonymous payment are provided. So we were positively surprised by this variety of offers in our review of IPVanish.

3. Desktop Software

If you choose to use a Virtual Private Network, then it’s important to focus on application quality and compatibility with key platforms. For this reason, we dedicate this point to a full section in our review of IPVanish 2019.

The software of the American provider is also accessible on a wide range of operating systems and devices. It is available on classic operating systems such as Windows, MacOS but also on other systems such as Ubuntu or Chromebook. Of course we do not want to leave the mobile platforms out, it covers Android, iOS and Windows Phone.

Visit IPVanish>

It will also be possible to use the service on routers equipped with DD-WRT or Tomato as well as on Fire TV from Amazon. The selection is great here and of course can only play a positive role in our rating and the test of IPVanish.

Device IPVanish

4. Mobile app

The following point in this review of IPVanish 2019 is about the mobile applications being provided. More and more people use only their smartphone for Internet access, so this point is of great relevance.

IPVanish offers an application for iOS, Android and Windows Phone which are of good quality. Even for those whose English is not so good, it will be easy to be able to change location immediately.

Our test of IPVanish the mobile application has proven to be a true success and we think no matter which platform you use, you will be satisfied.

5. Security and privacy

If you decide to use a Virtual Private Network you are looking for security and anonymity. It has never been as dangerous to surf the Internet as in 2019 and this tendency does not seem to change in the years to come.

For this reason, we dedicate a full paragraph of our assessment of IPVanish in 2019 to security.

From a technical point of view, IPVanish offers the various VPN protocols OpenVPN, L2TP and PPTP and uses 256-bit encryption for the first two and 128-bit encryption for PPTP.

Security IPVanish-1130×491

As far as privacy and anonymity are concerned, IPVanish does not record logs concerning users and their activities. Nevertheless, we would like to advise you to be cautious here and we doubt a bit, as this provider has its location in the United States.

So you’re not sure about organizations like the NSA and you do not know if they are snooping on the provider’s servers. For this reason, the vpn-tester.de team recommends they opt for a provider like ExpressVPN, which is located in Hong Kong and therefore immune to this type of problem.

6. Customer service

Another point in our review of IPVanish is customer service. You always have to make sure that it is both well available and of high quality. In the event that there are problems with the operation or the like, you certainly do not want to wait several hours or days for the answer to a request.

For this reason, we have tested all the customer service offered by IPVanish. There is a well trained team who will respond courteously by email 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Customer service is only available in English, so you would say that if you were in the United States, that would be logical too.

Visit IPVanish>

The test of IPVanish lets us miss the availability of an online chat, because the time between the request and the answer provided by the provider is much longer. It is far from being possible to obtain them in a few seconds or minutes, as is the case with ExpressVPN, CyberGhost or NordVPN.

7. Speed

If you want to use your Virtual Private Network to perform downloads or stream Netflix, make sure you have good speed. In fact, each provider will reduce their bandwidth slightly (due to the encryption process), so it’s important to know what percentage of the connection is slowing down.

Unfortunately, the cold shower comes when you are several thousand kilometers away from your own location. Bandwidth is reduced by over 15% when using a server in Sydney.

The rating of IPVanish ends here with a negative point, since the speed is not very satisfactory. We have shown this with the example of Sydney but the problem is the same if you want to connect to an American server to stream Netflix US from within the eu.

8. Conclusion

Nevertheless, our rating of IPVanish in 2019 is rather positive, but we do not recommend it for most uses.

To form your own opinion, we recommend that you use the 7-day money-back guarantee on non-satisfaction test to test it without any commitment. So you can easily try out how it works for downloading torrents, streaming, surfing the web, and so on.

All you have to do is go to the official website of IPVanish to sign up for a subscription. With all offers you get the money back guarantee.

Below you can see an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of this VPN provider, which we analyzed in our in-depth review of IPVanish in 2019.

Good:

  • Quality of a Tier 1 network
  • Wide range of compatible devices
  • No log files
  • P2P allowed for all locations

Not so good

  • Higher prices than the competition
  • Disappointing speed

5. CyberGhost VPN

CyberGhost is a Romania based VPN provider. He is very dedicated in the field of protection and offers a service “without log files” with 61 VPN locations all over the world and more than 3,700 servers that allow P2P and allow the streaming of several applications, including Netflix US from Germany. Discover everything you need to know with our detailed CyberGhost 2019 assessment test.

  • 4. Security and privacy
  • 5. Customer service
  • 6. speed
  • 7. Conclusion

1. Prices

Let’s start this CyberGhost Review 2019 with a point that can only interest you: with the price.

This provider differs from its competitors in the VPN market by offering a highly competitive offering. Here you can find an excellent compromise between low prices and excellent services. So it really is no coincidence if our CyberGhost rating is so positive.

And indeed, as you can see below, there are various offers, with the price varying according to the duration. As usual, the longer the term of your subscription, the lower the price per month.

Note that between the moment this review test was written on CyberGhost and the moment you read it, prices may rise. Therefore, we can only encourage you to look at the official website of the provider, how the prices are right now.

As you can now find out through our CyberGhost review, this provider currently offers the following rates:

  • 1 month: € 11.99
  • 1 year: € 63.48 speak € 5.29 per month
  • 2 years: € 78.96 say € 3.29 per month
  • 3 years: € 88,00 say € 2,45 per month

CyberGhost offers very regular actions. Sometimes he even offers a 3-year subscription with an even more attractive price per month. Once again we would like to encourage you to check the official website of the provider yourself after reading our CyberGhost review test to see the current prices.

A 45-day money back guarantee is also offered . This definitely gives you the time you need to test this offer yourself and without any risks.

2. Payment Methods

Now let’s continue our CyberGhost Review 2019 with the payment methods. Once you have selected one, all you have to do is pay.

There are several solutions offered. We particularly appreciate that this VPN provider also accepts payment in Bitcoins. Of course, payments with PayPal or credit cards are accepted.

Visit CyberGhost>

In other words, you will forcibly find the payment method that meets your expectations. Our rating on CyberGhost is therefore more than positive. If you want to be perfectly anonymous from A to Z, you can choose to pay with Bitcoins.

But if you want something simple, fast and efficient, then you decide to pay with PayPal.

3. Desktop Software

If you opt for a VPN provider for your devices, then you should opt for a provider that ALL supports its devices. Thus, it is necessary to make sure that many devices are supported by the candidate VPN provider.

As you will find in our CyberGhost review, this provider offers its users the ability to install the software on all major operating systems: Windows, Mac OSX, iOS and Android.

You can even install this VPN on Linux or on routers to secure all devices accessing the network. Our rating on CyberGhost is really positive in this area, and we especially appreciate that it’s possible to install this VPN on 5 devices with a single subscription.

So you can really protect all your devices!

Since we did our CyberGhost 2019 test on a Macbook too, we downloaded the Mac OSX compatible software. The application is very easy to install. The latter has been worked out really well and is also extremely easy to use.

We really liked their design. However, compared to using it under Windows, it still remains somewhat limited. Our CyberGhost rating, however, continues to be very positive!

4. Mobile app

Our review test CyberGhost would not be detailed if we did not also discuss the applications for mobile devices. Because in fact it is getting more and more important from year to year. And for good reason, because more and more users surf the Internet with their smartphone or tablet.

Thus, it is simply imperative for a good VPN provider to provide high quality applications for these devices. As we mentioned earlier in our CyberGhost Review 2019, we are not disappointed by this provider in this area who offers a satisfying application.

Visit CyberGhost>

For this CyberGhost test we tested the application on iOS.

5. Security and privacy

Security and privacy are the hobby-horses of the VPN providers. It is essential (if you really depend on your security) to opt for a provider who does not keep the logfiles or offers the kill switch.

As we mention in our CyberGhost review, this provider offers the most popular VPN protocols: OpenVPN, L2TP and PPTP with 256-bit encryption for the first two and 128-bit encryption for PPTP. This is really good and you can be sure that your data can not be read by any stranger.

Logs CyberGhost

As far as privacy and anonymity is concerned, CyberGhost is clear in its confidentiality statement, stating that it does not keep logfiles (no activity logs and no connection logs). Again, you can be quiet, because Romania does not require that VPN providers keep any log files. By the way, notice that some Western European countries require a retention of surfing data for at least one year …

Our review of CyberGhost is extremely positive in terms of security and privacy. It has the kill switch (emergency stop button), does not store log files and offers the best encryption protocols. You can go with your eyes closed!

VPN Definition

What is a Virtual Private Network?
Because of the recent security news on the Internet and especially about Net Neutrality in the US, you’ve probably heard the word “VPN”. But what exactly is it? In this article, we will introduce you to our definition of VPN and explain what it is.

Even if you are not a computer expert at all, you will find that it is actually very easy to understand and also very easy to use. Defining the VPN is not that difficult, whether you’re a beginner or an expert, you’ll be able to use it in no time.

Our comparison criteria

To assess the providers, all services must be evaluated according to the same criteria. For this reason, our rating is based on 10 criteria, which we will discuss in more detail shortly. The best VPN provider is the one that meets most of our 10 criteria.

1. Security

This is certainly the most important aspect to keep in mind when trying to filter out the best VPN service from more than 300 providers. Some provide a complete level of security by protecting your data with the most advanced VPN protocols. These include OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP / IPSec, etc. Only the best VPN providers are able to guarantee you the highest level of security. This of course also includes the renunciation of the storage of log data and the kill-switch function. For your safety, we recommend that you do not choose free VPN services . Because these offer an insufficient level of protection. One thing is for sure, the best VPN 2019 is not free.

2. Customer Support

Choosing a Virtual Private Network is usually about finding the best compromise between security and speed. The higher the desired level of security, the more you have to sacrifice speed The best VPN: CyberGhost However, the best VPN is able to reconcile high speed and a first class security level. This really shows the difference between qualitative and larger providers compared to smaller providers. Because the latter usually lack the funds for the development of qualitative networks. So if you choose the best VPN 2019, you benefit from both high transmission rates and the highest level of security. You can also improve transfer speeds by selecting a protocol that best suits your needs. For example, if you want to use the VPN for streaming, the level of security need not be as high as when publishing highly confidential content, such as political information.

3. Speed

This point is neglected by many, but for us it is one of the most important criteria when choosing a VPN provider. The best VPN provider has 24/7/365 live customer service. Some services, such as CyberGhost, even offer a German-speaking customer service (which is rarely the case with other providers). A reactive and efficient customer service is one of the most important criteria when choosing your VPN service. For example, if you have a problem at 3 in the morning, you will not want to wait until the next day to find a solution. When you visit the Best VPN Service 2019 page and open the online chat, you will see that you will receive a response within a few seconds.

4. Pricing

Of course, when choosing the best VPN service we also pay attention to its tariffs. Here it is all about not relying on the cheapest offer. Rather, one should first ask the question why it is cheaper. Because everything has a reason. It’s like going to the supermarket and buying chicken. There are premium quality chicken for which you have to pay 2-3 times more. Some prefer quality and choose the most expensive VPN, while others sacrifice quality for a cheaper rate. One should, however, enjoy this principle with caution, because not always is a high price for quality and better performance. This is the case with the best VPN 2019, ExpressVPN, but not with IPVanish, although it is not very different in terms of cost from ExpressVPN … As you probably already realized, you need to pay attention not only to the price, but also to what is behind it. The best VPN should offer quality at a great price.

5. Money back guarantee

The offerings of the largest Virtual Private Network services always aim to keep you as a customer for as long as possible. For this reason, as with many other web services, you will get a better rate if you choose a longer duration (1, 2, 3 … years). The best VPN: CyberGhost You probably will not want to commit yourself long term unless you are convinced of the quality of the service. Therefore, providing an unconditional money back guarantee was an indispensable criterion when choosing the best VPN provider. ExpressVPN, CyberGhost, NordVPN, or HideMyAss allow you to test the offer for 30 days. In our eyes, this plays an extremely important role and we can only recommend that you test and compare the different providers before the decision is made. You will get an overview of the services of different providers in our VPN comparison . If you are not 100% satisfied, you can have your money refunded unconditionally.

6. Number of devices per account

Most of us today have more than just a device that needs protecting. Almost all users have at least two, a PC and a smartphone. However, it is not uncommon to own more than two devices. In our ranking to identify the best VPN 2019, we have therefore also checked the number of possible devices per account. What does that mean? For example, with a provider like CyberGhost, you can install your VPN on 7 devices at the same time. So, if you have multiple devices that you want to protect, or if you want to share the access with your family and friends, this provider is perfect for you! We think this criterion is very important, as we are sure that you will appreciate it if you have a high number of secure connections per account. The best VPN should be able to protect all your devices at the same time.

7. Number of countries

The number of countries is one of the criteria that should be considered in your search for the best VPN 2019. Even the largest providers in the market are very different in this area. For the best VPN providers, you can usually choose between 50 and 190 countries. Others have a much more disappointing record of just 20 countries covered, which in our opinion is really not very much. With a large country selection, you can access much more content. For example, if you want to watch Côte d’Ivoire TV channels, the number of Virtual Private Network services that you can do that is probably very low.

8. Number of servers

If you care about performance, you need a VPN with a large selection of servers around the world. The best VPN service should have at least 1000 servers. The more servers it has, the less heavily each one will be wasted and the more difficult it becomes for Netflix or the authorities to block IP addresses. As far as the number of servers is concerned, NordVPN is really the leader in the best VPN 2019, as it currently has more than 4,300 servers worldwide.

9. Allowing to download torrent files

Nearly 40% use a VPN for downloading torrent files via P2P. If so, make sure your provider allows you to download and share torrent files via P2P. This is the case for the best VPN providers in our 2019 ranking. All let you download torrents without spying on you. In this way you are optimally protected and your anonymity is guaranteed. Play it safe and check this point again before choosing the provider. Because unlike what many believe, not all providers allow file sharing and may block your bitTorrent.

10. Streaming

Last but not negligible point, which we considered in the determination of the best VPN 2019, is the streaming. This refers to the manufacturer’s ability to access TV channels and streaming applications around the world. For example, Netflix US can only unlock the fewest providers. Only the best VPN vendors manage to unlock Netflix in every country in the world. So if you like streaming, be sure to take a closer look at this point in your selection. With ExpressVPN, the best VPN 2019, you can unlock Netflix and any other streaming service around the world.
